6 of the Trendiest Wedding Invitation Designs to Choose From
These fabulous ideas will get your wedding off to a gorgeous start
Invitations are the first glimpse guests will have of your wedding, so it’s important to make a statement and express your style. We talked to some of the hottest invitation shops in Westchester and the Hudson Valley to learn about upcoming trends — and get inspired by their favorite designs from the past.
Bright & Beachy Destination Wedding
“We went with a watercolor ocean design for the backdrop and layered in the text so that guests would know exactly what to expect upon arrival – palm trees and ocean breeze,” says Cara Eswein from Love Pretty Inc. This idea is perfect for a destination wedding, and the custom passport booklet with all the wedding details can be used as a special itinerary for your guests.

“We have clients that are starting to describe their wedding style as ‘industrial’ with metals and coppers,” says Amy Eddy of Graphic Nature, LLC. We love how the font pops and the use of gold foil in the envelope enhances this simple design, giving it an elegant, glamorous look.

Petals and Penmanship
These intricate invitations by Laura Damiano Designs couldn’t be more different: one with an abundance of romantic flowers and rich fonts, and the other with a dreamy, whimsical printing. “I think calligraphy and simple florals will be popular in 2017,” says Laura.

“The trend I’m seeing most is brides really wanting to capture their personality and wedding venue in their invites,” says Rena Franco of Rena Franco Design. Adding an engagement photo is one way to make the invite more personal.

Silently Screaming Designs
This nautical themed wedding invitation is great for any venue along the water, explains Martina Parisi of Silently Screaming Designs. Along with anchors, ropes, and the use of navy blue, nautical puns on the RSVP cards – “Yes it’s a shore thing!” or “Sorry, we’re all tide up!” – emphasize the theme and add a sense levity.

All About Acrylics
“We have seen an upswing in acrylic invitations,” says Denise Buzy-Pucheu from The Persnickety Bride. “They have a wow factor upon arrival.” Layers of the text and shades of purple and pale lavender add distinctive texture to the invite.
